EVENT UPDATE - March 19, 2021
Cautious preparations are beginning for the Return of the Sun! We are tentatively planning on this event, held at its traditional time.
At this time, the event is being limited to invitation only and will be capped at a much smaller number than is traditional for any of our events. Most invitations will be limited to those who have previously and strongly contributed to the site or the event in the past - this includes members of the Planning Group that help administer the Thing, as well as those individuals designated by a consensus of the site Thegns.
The event will focus on the upkeep and maintenance of the site that will be needed after the last year. Numerous planning discussions will be held, as well as a private wake (See "Passing of a Jarl" on this website).
If you have any questions about attendance, please use the website on the form to inquire.
There will be little or no public attendance at this event.
We will be planning a complete event with all of our usual splendor in the Autumn with Return of the Dead.
Invitation Only for Spring 2021.
There will be no registration.
Any questions about attendance or invitation should be made ASAP.
NOTE: Masks will be allowed, please make sure that they are unobtrusive and in period-correct colors.
We will be doing our celebration and feast on Saturday evening! Dress in your finest fabrics with your fanciest bling! Period feast gear is required to participate (esp. drink containers)
Come prepared with a couple of things that you might want to say at feast. Too short and you'll have to go again, too long and the archers get you...
. Due to the primitive nature of the site, we cannot accommodate food allergies or special preparations. If you need special food, please bring it.
We have multiple battles planned for this event for both Eastern and Western styles.
Please review the authenticity and combat guidelines before participating.
Melees, one on one, and woods/running battles are all part of the mix.
Stay tuned for more details!
Ravensborg has a long history of fun shoots both on the archery field and for qualified fighters, on the combat field.
Past shoots include a wands, roving, and clouts.
We will also have an axe, spear and knife targets. Bring your toys!
There are no costs to attend this event, but donations are welcome to help cover expenses.
We hold an auction before feast that is the main source of funds used for site maintenance and improvement. Everyone is asked to consider bringing a quality reenactment item for addition to the auction. This allows us to keep these events free. Please be generous with donations and bids.
